2022 Georgia Baby to Win $5,529 for College

Apr 21, 2022

For families with newborns, college may seem like a distant dream. But, saving regularly over time is key when building a college savings. That’s why the state of Georgia’s Path2College 529 Plan is reaching out to new parents early to encourage financial planning so the dream of college can become a reality for more Georgian children.

For the 11th year, Path2College is offering its Newborn Sweepstakes to babies born in Georgia. One family with a 2022 newborn will be awarded with $5,529 for his or her college savings. In addition, the hospital where the baby is born will win $1,529.

“Having a newborn brings with it many new responsibilities, which can often be overwhelming for new families. We want to help with one important area—financial planning for education,” said Georgia Student Finance Commission President Lynne Riley. “We have the tools families need to plan for future education-related expenses, and we hope to encourage families to start saving early. Saving regularly over time is the best way to make an impact, and one lucky family will get a jump-start on saving!”

Parents, grandparents and guardians of Georgia babies born in 2022 may go to until April 14, 2023, for official rules, prize details and to enter for a chance to win the 2022 Newborn Sweepstakes. Entrants must be legal residents or taxpayers of Georgia and at least 18 years of age to enter. No purchase necessary. Void where prohibited. Sponsored by the Path2College 529 Plan.
